In speaking with British magazine AutoExpress, Ferrari confirmed a machine which performs a finishing process on crankshafts was not calibrated correctly causing tolerance specifications to be far out. As a result, an excessive vibration can occur which could cause engine failure.
AutoExpress confirms that 10 Californias and six 458s in the UK are affected. Ferrari will undoubtedly contact the owners of the affected vehicles to be fixed.
Back in 2010 Ferrari also recalled 1,248 F458 units as a result of at least a dozen models catching fire. The cause was related to an adhesive used to attach a heat shield on the inside rear wheelwell housings which melted and then ignited when exposed to high heat.
